    COLUMBUS, Ohio  White Castle, a 90-year-old hamburger chain known for its square "slider" burgers, is sipping on the idea of offering alcoholic beverages as it tests beer and wine sales at a restaurant in Indiana.

    The food famously craved by stoners in the 2004 movie "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" can be had with a glass of wine or a domestic or seasonal beer at a Lafayette, Ind., restaurant that fuses a conventional White Castle with a new concept for the company called Blaze Modern BBQ. Wine costs $4.50 and beers start at $3.

    Other fast-food restaurants also are dabbling with alcohol. Earlier this year, Burger King opened the Whopper Bar South Beach, a restaurant in Miami Beach offering beer, and Starbucks Corp. has been testing beer and wine at a few sites.

    This sounds dangerous.  You don't walk into a White Castle unless you've already had a few drinks.

      Actually, getting drunk at White Castle would probably reduce the amount of drunk people on the road by half...  After all they are already there.  Now, if someone could start serving pot at Dunkin Doughnuts, we could wrap up almost all DUIs.

        We have a guy in our neighborhood who does that.  I'm not sure if Dunkin' inc. gets a cut or not.

    Whoa, if heart attack food is no longer as profitable as it once was. Let's serve something really addictive and cheap to boot!

    Would be an awesome idea I think if they're looking to revamp their image towards something more like a chain of bars.

    Maybe they should open bars and just serve little hamburgers as a snack..lol

      Lol. That'd probably be a smarter side business so if it does fail, they don't damage the White Castle brand name.

    It doesn´t seem all that weird.

    In Spain, my Big Mac combo always includes a pint of beer.
